Today, my 19-year-old brother broke into my dorm and robbed me. When I tried to file a report, my brother went to my parents and told them that he took it because I owed him money on a bet. Guess who lost $92.50. FML

I do understand op not wanting to file a report and go to the police about this. You have to realize that op's brother would be charged for this and have a permanent record. Which means that every time he has to fill out an application for a job he is legally required to check off that he has a criminal record, which severely affects his chances of getting a good job. Yes, the brother is in the wrong. 100% he is. But I understand not wanting to file a report and have something that can affect him and his job/career/life for the rest of his life. I would try and resolve this between the family first. Tell him (or the parents) that if he doesn't give it back, that you will file a report, and he will have a permanent record which will affect every job he has and stay with him for life. Maybe that will get them to smarten up.

If your parents took his side just because he said that I would say they're lacking common sense. Like everyone else is saying, I think going to the police is the best option.
